Situation in Minnesota

As of March 23, 2020

Total lab-confirmed positive tests: 235
Deaths: 1

The number of lab-confirmed positive tests among Minnesota residents will be updated daily on Situation Update for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) with test results from the previous day.

This total reflects only the results from laboratory testing. We believe there are more cases in Minnesota, and that the virus is circulating in communities. It is important for everyone to follow advice on community mitigation and social distancing to help us flatten the case curve.
